It’s a successive celebration of its 15th year in the industry and is set to unveil the all-new Thunder 2.0, earmarking a formidable strength and durability with a bigger, bolder, and tougher pick-up truck.

We are proud to say that with help of Filipino skills, craftsmanship, and competence this new durable vehicle has taken shape” says United Asia Automotive, Inc. (UAAGI) and FMPI President Erroll E. Dueñas.
Fueled by passion and dedication in advancing national mobility, the all-new Thunder 2.0 is proudly assembled by Filipino, for the Filipinos – just as all the FOTON vehicle lineup. It runs on a strong yet fuel-efficient 3rd Generation 2.0L Diesel Engine engineered and manufactured by FOTON Motors. With a maximum power output of 160hp at 4,000 Rpm and a torque of 390 N.m it can haul as heavy as 1 ton of rated payload capacity.
The all-new Thunder 2.0 showcases a masculine and sporty exterior design as it comes standard with roll-bars, cargo hooks for easy cargo mounting, large tail lamps, LED DRL fog lamps, and a large sporty grill bearing that rugged FOTON look. Plus, a game-changer combination of durable body composition of high-strength steel with lightweight and energy-absorbing design.
